Critic Reviews for Big Girls Don't Cry
A refreshing reminder that learning how to navigate danger is a big part of being a teenager, and that no kind of upbringing -- or nifty home furnishings -- can or should shield a young adult from life outside her doors.
[A] tiresome melange of teen depression, teen sex, teen crime, and teen friendship...
Audience Reviews for Big Girls Don't Cry
Now this is adolescence! This German film is a real gem! Deeply emotional, it is the gripping story of the coming-of-age of two best friends who come to face reality. The story is captivating and leads to a brilliant ending; cliché yet enjoyable. The actors, whom I thought would be horrible, ended up being top-notch. I am pretty sure most of you are familiar with Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Both Sisterhood and Big Girls Don't Cry feature adolescent girls (best friends at that) dealing with life in general. Briefly, coming-of-age. But Sisterhood is a joke compared to this. I mean come on, teen girls don't all have perfect lives and go crazy over the slightest dramatic event. Some teen girls do take drugs. They do go to rave parties. They do have sex. They do have dark thoughts. Where Sisterhood features the bubblegum soda pop side of adolescence, Big Girls Don't Cry is the REAL DEAL. This could also be compared to Thirteen; however I personally prefer this over Thirteen because the latter is excessively intense to the point of making the viewer uncomfortable and nauseous. Over-dramatic if you ask me. Watch this instead!
